Derick Brassard scored two goals for Philadelphia (8-5-3), which lost two straight for the first time this season. Martin Jones made 39 saves.
Smith scored at 1: 28 of the third period to give Boston a 4-2 lead. He carried the puck down the right side of Philadelphia zone, got a step on defenseman Travis Sanheim, and beat Jones from the right face-off circle.
The goal was Smith’s first in nine games this season and came after he was scratched the previous two games.

Brassard made it 2-1 at 1: 22 when he scored from in front.
He tied the game 2-2 with a power-play goal at 9: 25. Claude Giroux’s pass through the slot tipped off Curtis Lazar’s stick and went to Brassard, who scored from the right side.
Forbort gave Boston a 3-2 lead with a shot through a Smith screen with 3: 33 left in the second.
His four goals are the most he’s scored in his seven NHL seasons.
Pastrnak made it 5-2 when he scored at 4-on-4 at 12: 47. He has scored 10 points (three goals, seven assists) during a six-game point streak.
